Transfer news: Arsenal ready to break transfer record for Aubameyang

Posted by

Arsenal are set to follow up the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with a record-breaking bid for Borussia Dortmund striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Dortmund have already confirmed that the Gunners have contacted them about the player, but had a £45m offer turned down by the Bundesliga club.

But Arsenal are ready to go above the £52m they paid for Alexandre Lacazette last summer, to get a deal done for Aubameyang.

Dortmund have also asked about Olivier Giroud being part of the deal.

However, a straight cash deal is still being discussed, with Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger privately convinced that the Aubameyang deal is very close.

Arsenal are in negotiations with Mesut Ozil about a new deal and are ready to break the £200,000-a-week barrier to sign both Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang.
